13th Annual Adopt-A-Family Provides Holiday Gifts for Patients and Families


It's the most wonderful time of the year again as the Dean Snell Cancer Foundation elves were wrapping up a storm this weekend for the 9 holiday adopt-a-families. Gifts ranged from snow pants and winter jackets to small household appliances and bedding, arts and crafts, games, grocery cards and so much more. Today our elves delivered the gifts, along with 25 food baskets with all the fixings for a holiday dinner to cancer patients and their families at New England Cancer Specialists in Topsham.


The holiday season of 2009 was the first year that DSCF introduced the Adopt-A-Family. That year the elves only provided for 1 family. There has been a great increase in need over the years and the elves were excited to be able to provide for 9 families this year.


Thank you to Bill Dodge Auto Group for sponsoring the 13th Annual Adopt-A-Family and to everyone who donated to the 1st Annual Holiday Dinner Basket Drive.
